Abstract:This paper suggests a new methodology for the analysis of film music that draws upon the philosophical concepts of Gilles Deleuze and Flix Guattari, and applies them to an analysis of Zbigniew Preisner's score for Krzysztof Kieslowski's Trois couleurs: bleu (1993). It is my contention that many film music analyses fail because of the lack of a common theoretical vocabulary between film and music theories. As a way of overcoming this methodological gap, I will employ the Deleuzian concepts of becoming-animal/woman/music and molarization/molecularization in order to create a methodological bridge between the two disciplines. In so doing, I will demonstrate that the score, narrative and mise-en-scne interact on a level that is not only complete, but more fully integrated than previously thought.
